Pray for Abdul

Please pray for Abdual Rahman, the Afghan Christian who may face death for converting to Christianity from Islam, which apparently is illegal there. The news today is that the Afghan government acknowledges American concern--which apparently is being felt, but says it has no control over the courts.

This may be just the tip of the sandberg. A missionary friend of mine who recently returned from visiting several countries in that part of the world said by far the most responsive to the gospel was Afghanistan. When I expressed amazement, knowing the official position on conversions, he replied that people have become desperate in Afghanistan as a result of hard times and the disruptions to their lives. So, there apparently are a whole lot more Abdul Rahmans--in secret.
